The Minnesota Department of Commerce made the decision to liquidate St. Francis Campus Credit Union and discontinue its operations after conducting an examination and determining the credit union was insolvent with no prospect for restoring viable operations on its own. At the time of liquidation and subsequent purchase by Central Minnesota Credit Union, the credit union served 3,400 members and had assets of approximately $51 million.
Chartered in 1963, St. Francis Campus Credit Union served employees of the St. Francis Campus, as owned by the Franciscan Sisters, their relatives and employees of the credit union. St. Francis Campus Credit Union is the second federally insured credit union liquidation in 2014.
NCUA is the independent federal agency created by the U.S. Congress to regulate, charter and supervise federal credit unions.
